Guest lecture from Prof. Jeremiah Adams-Prassl on algorithmic management at work
12. October 2021
Automated systems are increasingly running workplaces - from everyday management to hiring and firing workers. AI hasn’t come for workers ’jobs:
it is managers who see their traditional tasks replaced or supplemented by sophisticated analyzes of personal data. The pervasive reliance on people analytics ’, monitoring technology and algorithms to measure, control, and sanction workers is highly controversial: whilst fast and efficient, the technology is easily prone to bias and threatens to disperse responsibility into the cloud. In this lecture, Professor Adams-Prassl shared insights about the effects of algorithmic management and its challenges for accountability and legal regulation.
